“Almost all of the philosophical truths that I have come to know and understand I have learned from Aristotle,” says Mortimer J. Adler. This easy-to-listen-to exposition of Aristotle’s thoughts about nature, human actions, and the conduct of life confirms convictions that most of us hold, though we may not be fully aware of them. This is because Aristotle’s philosophical insights are grounded in the common experience we all possess and because they illuminate the common sense we all rely on. Philosophy is everybody’s business. It deepens our understanding of the knowledge we already have about ourselves, our society, and the world in which we live. With the proper guidance, all of us can experience success and great satisfaction from this effort of understanding, and in this, no better guide can be found than Aristotle.

Quotes & Awards

  • “This is a self-help book in the best sense of the term…The Aristotelian wisdom Adler affords us goes far beyond anything all the Norman Vincent Peales, Michael Kordas, and Wayne W. Dyers combined have to offer. Above all, Adler once again demonstrates that philosophy, real philosophy, can actually be useful.”

    Chicago Tribune Book World

  • “Davidson has a wonderful voice. Far from common, it’s a genuinely erudite English actor’s voice. His sound is classy and classical.” 


Listener Opinions

    " I've tried to read Aristotle before, but I kept getting bogged down and couldn't get the big picture. This book is the perfect introduction and summary for the non-philosopher. I wish I had read this in high school. It's very easy to read and I couldn't put it down. "

    " This is a treasure of a book. It simplifies Aristotle, whose prose is very difficult, at times, to plow through. In turn, it makes it easier to simplify Aristotle even more for my classes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Ken Parsell | 12/17/2013

    " As suggested by it's title, Aristotle for Everybody is the quintessential introduction to the philosophy of Aristotle. Written in simple and practical prose, Mortimer J. Adler brilliantly outlines the deep and penetrating philosophy of one of the world's greatest thinkers. "
